Los Angeles — 4 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Battleship USS Iowa Museum and Hollywood Bowl Museum. Get a sense of the local culture at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and The Broad. Venture out of the city with trips to 26-Mile Bike Path (in Santa Monica), The Getty Villa (in Malibu) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Mission San Juan Capistrano, admire the natural beauty at The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens, explore the world behind art at Bhagavad-gita Diorama-Museum, and admire the striking features of Walt Disney Concert Hall.
